Whole School Leadership Team (WSLT)

Angela Fairs

Principal
SALT

 


I feel very privileged to be the Founding Principal at BBIS and after almost 20 years in British and International schools, fully believe in the power of smaller international schools like ours, to enable students and teachers to achieve more than they think they can.
I am committed to nurturing self confident, globally-minded students, with mindsets for success. My vocation and calling is international education, although I started my educational career in London, and held leadership positions at the prestigious Alleyns School, Dulwich, London, before moving to become Head of Primary at Dover Court International School in Singapore.


Jonathan Spinks

Deputy Principal
Head of Performing Arts
SALT
MYP Teacher

 


In my opinion teaching is still the best job in the world and I believe passionately in inspiring students, not just academically, but personally, socially and also to make a difference in the world.
I have been in education now for just over 20 years and started my teaching career in Poland. I have since worked in the UK and other international schools in Budapest and Bali. I have a wide range of experience in teaching and leadership across the entire 4-18 age range.


Petra Szalai

Managing Director

 


I studied at international schools throughout my childhood, at the British International School of Budapest( BISB) in primary, and at the American International School ( AISB) for high school and IB diploma. Having had those experiences I fell in love with the International school models, and it was a dream to open a school which combines all yet keeps the small family atmosphere.I completed my double major in international relations and psychology at Vienna American University. After this I then gained an MBA at Oxford Brooks University. Later I continued at a Doctoral school in Budapest.


Tamás Füzesy

Business Manager

 


My name is Tamas Fuzesy. I worked for different national and international NGOs in the fields of health, education and income as CEO and COO in the last 25 years (AEEA – American Embassy Employees Association; Bátor Tábor Foundations; United Way Hungary; HTDA – Hidden Treasures Down Association).
I am the Chairman of the Board of Habitat for Humanity Hungary and Supervisory Board member at the Council of Disability Associations on a social responsibility base. I am eager to work at BBIS and change other people’s life.


Gavin Crewe

Admissions and Marketing Director


I was born in England and spent eight years working within the UK university student marketing sector, before spending three years managing a university career centre in south east Asia.

 

This experience has given me a real insight into how the right education and environment plays an important role in the success of the world’s future employees. In a world that is rapidly changing, where employers favour attitude over aptitude, it is now more important than ever for schools to adapt and help nurture a more holistic and rounded approach to education.

I started my career at one of the big (at that time) six auditing companies as an audit assistant. Since then, I worked as a finance manager/financial controller for an American FMCG, a British energy company, a Dutch IT firm and a Hungarian film making company. I also assisted one of the Hungarian Waldorf schools with their finances. I love to work in a multicultural environment and am very honoured to join the BBIS team. I feel privileged to be able to use my professional knowledge in the area of children’s education.
